Julie qualified as a Solicitor in 2006 and has extensive experience in personal injury litigation. She has, throughout this time, managed a large and varied caseload within the personal injury field, including a significantly high level of complex litigated cases.
In her current practice, many of Julie’s clients have experienced traumatic historic occurrences of abuse; coping with these issues and challenges is often very difficult for the victim and their loved ones and the trauma they suffer is very often life changing. In addition to engaging collaboratively with third parties when possible, Julie’s focus is one of support - achieving the best outcome for her clients is her primary target. One of Julie’s goals is to put her clients at ease and help them unravel and understand what can be a complicated, drawn out, and often intimidating process. She helps them secure funding for treatment where possible, as well as getting compensation for their psychological injuries and future needs.
Julie has been awarded APIL’s Senior Litigator accreditation. In receiving the accreditation, Julie has shown that she satisfies APIL’s specific and extensive criteria for the quality mark to be awarded showing her competence and specialist expertise dealing with personal injury claims.
Julie previously worked at a number of regional law firms and more recently within the Major Trauma Service at a firm of Solicitors in London. There, she dealt with Major Trauma and Serious Injury cases arising out of various incidents including, road traffic collisions, accidents in the workplace, and public liability claims. The injuries in these cases ranged from routine to complex muscular-skeletal injuries, significant psychological injuries and serious head and brain injuries.
Julie graduated with a 2:1 Law Degree. Studying medical law as part of her undergraduate degree sparked an interest in this area of law so she continued with her studies and, additionally, gained an LLM in Medical Law, with commendation.
